What will be happen If I try to access SignalR program with IE6?
I think it doesn't work, but what would the error massage be?

SignalR can be used in a variety of web browsers, but typically, only the latest two versions are supported.
Applications that use SignalR in browsers must use jQuery version 1.6.4 or major later versions (such as 1.7.2, 1.8.2, or 1.9.1).
SignalR can be used in the following browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and 10. Modern, Desktop, and Mobile versions are supported.
Mozilla Firefox: current version - 1, both Windows and Mac versions.
Google Chrome: current version - 1, both Windows and Mac versions.
Safari: current version - 1, both Mac and iOS versions.
Opera: current version - 1, Windows only.
While SignalR may run without major issues in older browser versions, we do not actively test SignalR in them and generally do not fix bugs that may appear in them.
For a list of configurations that are actively tested against, see our testing matrix.

It will definitely not use WebSockets but it might work. I don't think there are users who use IE6, BTW.

This should give some idea: https://github.com/SignalR/SignalR/wiki/Faq
Was waiting for someone to give an answer about whta error would cause. Still waiting.
Because it is not defenately supporting IE 6 as per http://www.asp.net/signalr/overview/getting-started/supported-platforms
In addition to requiring certain browsers, the various transports that SignalR uses have requirements of their own. The following transports are supported under the following configurations:
*: 6+ required for full functionality.

Thank you for your answer.
I just want to know what will be the error if I use IE6, I try to test it by myself, but it takes some times to establish the test enviroment.

You would need to test it yourself or find somebody who has tested it as the SignalR team doesn't test IE6.

If you don't have IE6 installed, you could use something like
BrowserStack to run it on a virtual machine :
from within your browser. (Scott Hanselman’s blog post discussed it being integrated into Microsoft’s Visual Studio)
It has full support for a huge range of different browsers, resolutions, environments and also allow you to even run code from your local machine through one of the virtual servers. You can see some of the major features below :
